|JNN108 Strange sounds can make a man happy - Out Level|
And here I was thinking that the man we know all too well from his magnificent field recordings (Luis Antero) had taken a side step into a different cloak (Out Level). But upon checking any profiles for writing a little bit to whet your apetiteâs I realize that this is the eleventh release allready! I should rather frown upon myself for not having shared any of his music yet on a previous NTNS radio show...

|JNN106 Conclusion - SzentpÃ©tery Csaba|
It was somewhere in 2009 that through NTNS radio I first heard of this Hungarian artist. I had played an album from him that was released on Amduscias Records and I loved that to bits. The silence after that settled in untill early August SzentpÃ©tery contacted me and asked me if I was interested in releasing his latest album. Without hearing even a single tone I welcomed him onboard and new that I would be proud of this fine fine release...

|JNN029 Penumbra - Phillip Wilkerson|
As coincidence would have it, JNN released Phillip Wilkerson's Penumbra just in time for the February 9, 2009 full moon. A full moon which, as the universe would have it, coincided with a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse visible in eastern Europe, Asia, Australia, the Pacific, and western North America.

|JNN089 It is more then all world - AAGSF|
For the longest time I’ve admired the works of AAGSF very much. AAGSF or in the longer version: Aliens A Galactic Sound Flanks hails from Moscow Russia and has to date released many a beautiful album on the Russian RusZud netlabel. I am not sure if he has released outside of RusZud a lot, but let this moment be one for you to get acqainted with the subtle and deep works of this sound meister. The matter cannot appear and cannot disappear...

|JNN091 Ministries & Thieves - Stream69|
From France Stream69 revisits the JNN catalog with his successor to the beautiful album ‘Souvenirs from Earth’ (JNN046). This time the edges have sharpened, though the beautiful have not left sight, or perhaps better the ears. Sit back and let this 16 track album begeist your ears.

|JNN087 Slow motions - Candstandya|
Hailing from Brussels in Belgium comes Michiel Geluykens aka Candstandy. Early March he nudged me towards his first full album release for a possible JNN release. It needed but a few listens to know this very much deserved a spot on the label. His original idea was to create a dreamlike atmosphere using abstract sounds and motions. I must confess that this turned into a very warm, yet still experimentally edgy result that will guide the listeners ears into a comfortzone with slow drones and soft...

|JNN025 Shriek.Void - Metlay!|
Mike Metlay's body of work has always included abstract noisescapes, a passion he's enjoyed for nearly three decades. (A recent example is JNN014, The Redundancy Of Suicide by mindSpiral.) Mike's main noisescaping device is "Thing One", the Oberheim Xpander analog modular synthesizer he has been playing for 25 years now. Currently, as for the past 10 years or more, he uses Thing One primarily for self-modulating noise textures that can be manipulated in real time with broad control gestures...

|JNN113 Sea of Trees - Krabatof|
How these mystical artists find their way into the realms of JNN is beyond me sometimes, but behold; this âSea of treesâ will astound you. But before we talk of this album here, letâs share a previous review of âInsectâs Brainâ shared on Touching Extremes; âa little more than 31 minutes of very interesting âbruit artâ by Geneva-based Ludovic Guerry, who manipulates ânoises, field recordings and many weird soundsâ in seven personal definitions of a peculiar world of embryonic utterance...
